An idea first floated at Charlotte's Duke Mansion made military history in World War II. Visiting General George Marshall and local physicians including Dr. Paul Sanger came up with the notion of a portable hospital that could move close to the line of battle. The pioneering 38th Evacuation Hospital, staffed with Charlotte doctors and nurses, became the model for subsequent units, including MASH (Mobil Army Surgical Hospital) units during the Korean War.
